My husband John has changed my life in a lot of ways, but one of the greatest things about becoming a Mahaney has been becoming Aunt Jo. On our wedding night, we stayed up late snuggled up and opening our wedding cards. When we got to Liz and Wally’s, it was signed “love Liz, Wally, and Baby A!” We are so excited to meet Charlotte “Charlie” Andrus sometime soon!
Between us all, the last three years have been PACKED with bridal showers, bachelorette parties, birthday dinners, rehearsal dinners, baby showers, and house warming parties. But, this was the first time I got to host! Well, we were in Lizzy’s beautiful house, but I got to plan and decorate. Those of you who knew me throughout my wedding planning process know that I LOVE to plan. I love details and decor and color schemes. But I also love spreadsheets and budgets and timelines – it’s where my nerdy side meets my creative side. So I maaaay have gone a little pink-tulle-crazy. But, it was all in love and excitement for Liz, Wally, and baby Charlie!
I wanted to share some photos of the day. I just love watching Liz open up gifts! I’m going to have to pull some photos from her bridal shower and do a side-by-side; she is just so expressive! Thank you, so much, to everyone who came to celebrate with us! I know it was a hike for some, but we were so happy to have you join us.
PS – Scroll to the end to see some baby bump pictures too! Pretty soon, there will be pictures of baby toes, squishy newborn belly, and pretty soft eyelashes to add, too <3
